When looking to break into this career, should you put your face and real name out there?

What do you think is the proper balance? Does it make sense to use a pseudonym if you want to include your career-relevant social profiles on CVs?



You’re going to fork over your social security number to anyone that hires you, and everyone you work with could figure out your social profile or CV if you include work-related information on it, *and* anyone doing a background check is going to need your real information to call around to past employers/check with government agencies … so I don’t really see the point.

Professional lives can be kept separate from personal lives. Inventing a pseudonym for your professional life is not how I’d go about it.
